The problem looks to be with netscape (4.7x). It seems to be helpfully
deciding that http://www/ is actually shorthand for some other stupid
web site! (http://www.www.cnews/ or something, if I recall correctly.)
I tried turning off smart browsing, but that didn't help. Am I on the
right track, here? If so, does anyone know who to force netscape to
use the URL you enter?
I tried lynx too, though, and it failed; but since I haven't done any
configuration of it, that may not be so strange.
